Solid State Low powered Amplifiers
@moose89 Awesome!! I am so glad the fleawatt amp worked out for you! Makes me happy that synergy wins again. Chip bases amps seem to be really amazing when the right stuff is built around them. I’ve been checking these little amps out online in f... 
Neat "Tweaks" to improve the SQ of your streamed music!!!
Even going cheap -at least comprehensively so - can render some great results right off the bat. I was struggling for a while, wondering why after all that I’d done with my system and room that things just didn’t sound like it should. Some tracks ... 
Absorbing traffic noise with Helmholtz resonators (video)
Those that scoff have no ground. I’d love to experiment if even simply to learn of the possibilities 🙏🏼👍🏼

Solid State Low powered Amplifiers
So many great amps listed here, makes me want to get a set of super efficient speakers just to try one. But what about the offerings from Fleawatt? Many threads out there about how great they work with Klipsch speakers.  Well designed and affordab... 
Who out there wants to, or has, validated an amazing cable find?
Finding good synergy takes research, experimentation and time. Arguing over production techniques, materials, cryo, etc. just becomes an arbitrary rabbit hole. If you find some cables that make the right difference for your system and circumstance... 
Recommendations on integrated amps
+1 @markmoskow        I was totally in love with a Creek Evolution 50a before moving into separates. the Evolution 100a would be an even better choice. Evolution 2 also a nice amp. Highly recommended. Could find one used for a great price. Althou... 
Why do I prefer R2R over Chip based DAC's?
Another DAC that can sometimes be found used that is simply amazing to my ears, and to many on Agon and other forums - is an Okto Research DAC8 Stereo. Not at all sibilant, very natural, engaging, nuanced, expansive, dynamic, incredibly detailed. ... 
Is toeing speakers a bad idea?
It’s interesting the deviation that might occur between a speaker company’s recommendations and your own experience. Reflections, dimensions, ceiling height, even with what amp or dac you use, there are many factors that can influence the sonic ou... 
Eliminated my preamp with amazing results
I’ve tried not using a pre s couple of times. First time with a Topping D70s dac running as a pre while trading a Creek integrated for my current preamp (SPL Elector). It was better -in some ways- than running the Creek as a pre into a power amp. ... 
A little deeper on amp power please....
+1 @carlsbad2 @8th-note @erik_squires  Glad that current delivery came up soon here. Although many other factors reside in dynamic response, current capability and response to impedance dips seem to rise to the top in my experience. Factoring in... 
Happy Holidays to All
+1 @treepmeyer  Happy Holidays to everyone! 🎄  
Eversolo dmp A6 vs Master edition vs Z8
lol….here I am reading the entire thread trying to make a choice. Clearly a burden of the human condition to stall when too many of them are presented. Choice paradox! So what about compared to a Lumin U2 mini? Or will the A8 still outperform my e... 
Purchase on Audiogon arrived not as described
I’m so sorry you’re dealing with this. It’s horrifically sad when there are those that simply choose not to take care and pride in quality components and the community in whole. The very reason for this is for others to be able to experience the j... 
Sound Stage and Imaging
@mijostyn Ive always wondered about using larger driver subs. Thank you for explaining those size limitations, good to know from someone that has actually experienced the effect of between 12 and 15inch drivers. Can only imagine how amazing your...
